Subs update

#1 Post by admin2 » Mon Oct 31, 2022 4:47 pm

In case any are not taking in the 'Member's only' post about site funding, I am placing this in the 'open' area.

The following members have yet to contact me with regard to subscriptions and will, on 1 December, be removed from Member's access unless they have paid their subs, as the other members have. They will, of course, after that date be able to read the 'open' parts of the site (but not post) as can anyone on the internet AND they can re-apply for a new membership with a new username if they wish.

If any of the following are planning to quit, there is no need to respond to this post as the 'quitting' will just happen on 1/12. If any of them do otherwise wish to contact me, please use the PM system.

As of 31/10, these are they:

Last week update

#3 Post by admin2 » Wed Nov 23, 2022 10:00 am

After having 9 weeks notice of the introduction of subscriptions, it looks at this time as if the following will be losing their access to post on the site on 1 December:

Definite leavers:

ribrash
fin
VP959


Not responding or infrequent posters:

421dog
belfrybat
Bob
compo
GrumpyOldFart
larsssnowpharter
Magnus
Phewins
pmartin
Undried Plum


Dead in the water:

Lapsed posters - over 2 years:

Breton1¾
Cooda
DASTOCKS
Dunbar
Geordie_Expat
stuart


Lapsed posters - over 1 year:

Nick Riviera
Snerdley
tcinbg


Teetering on the edge:

AtomKraft
flyboy22
landy01
SOPS


So, that looks like 23 to go with another 5 'possible'.

How it will be

#4 Post by admin2 » Tue Nov 29, 2022 10:25 am

30th November is nigh. This is how the process will happen. To allow for time zones, I will, having risen from my slumbers on 1 Dec(Z), dined on a gourmet breakfast and carried out the required ablutions, begin carrying out the wishes of those who wish to revert to public, read-only status here, no earlier than 0700Z. If any members 'live' in a later time-zone, I assume they will let me know. We do hope some of you will decide £3 is worth it to fund the site and we will not lose you.

This is the current list (as at 1000Z, 30/11) of those wishing to leave, and I will process in alphabetical order:

421dog
AtomKraft
belfrybat
Bob
Breton1¾
compo
Cooda
DASTOCKS
Dunbar
fin
flyboy22
Geordie_Expat
GrumpyOldFart
landy01
larsssnowpharter
Magnus
Nick Riviera
Phewins
pmartin
ribrash
Snerdley
SOPS
stuart
tcinbg
Undried Plum
VP959
Woody

I make that 27, so we will then stand at 64 active members, which is a much more realistic state of affairs than the 269 we 'showed' in February. You can refer to relevant activity levels (as at 14/11) for most of the above in my 'Members only' section post at viewtopic.php?f=23&p=350706#p350619

Yes, we need more active members!
